Casting opportunity to be a part of a cutting edge piece of British theatre, 'TWO' written by acclaimed playwright Jim Cartwright.

The Criterion Theatre has a 60 year history of professional standard theatre within our own bespoke premises in Earlsdon, Coventry which seats 122 in our custom auditorium. Many of our members are professional and welcome the opportunity to play quality and substantial roles within our repertory company alongside their paid work.

TWO by Jim Cartwright is hilarious, yet heart-breaking, and presents a slice of working-class life in a Northern local pub. With a constantly quarrelling landlord and landlady, and the dozen regulars pulling up a stool, all life is present in this pub. It is the heart of communities. It is where people laugh, share stories, celebrate and mourn. Through this range of colourful characters, the rich tapestry of their interconnecting lives is revealed. This is a sharp and touching slice of English life in series of short vignettes that skilfully combines pathos and humour.

Characters: 1 Woman, 1 Man (playing age 30s/40s)
These two actors play all the other characters.
